Track Name: Don't Be Afraid; It's Only Death
Just beyond that wide river Styx
Is a place where sick men like me get our kicks
It’s a waiting room like you’ve never seen before
With a twenty five piece band and a ten thousand square foot ballroom floor

Oh, there’s a lady all dressed in red all gussied up with a bullet in her head
Looks like she could use a drink ... or a dance with the dead
Oh, lucky me, I’m the fella in black
who knows how to tango with a flask full of jack
I sauntered up slowly ... and this is what I said:

“Don’t be afraid. It’s only death.
It’s just as natural as your first breath
Life’s a bitch and then you fall
but hell’s a myth, the afterlife’s a ball
And now you’re lookin’ like you’ve never heard of a two step before
have another drink, don’t think, just get on your feet.
We’re gonna show ya what they’re for!

If we're allGod's children, God is a cannibal
He'll never stop eattin' 'cause his belly's never full
But if you've fallen from the land of the slaves,
Well there ain't no God here; you've been saved!

Don't be afraid. It's only death.
It's just as natural as your first breath.
Life's a bitch, and then you die,
But Hell's a myth and Heaven is just a lie.
And now you’re lookin’ like you’ve never heard of a two step before
have another drink, don’t think, just get on your feet.
We’re gonna show ya what they’re for!
